How do I delete my PC Desktop in Dropbox? I am not sure how I added it and now I can't undo it? Does anyone know how to unsync?

Hi @Lucylu91,

Seems you have activated "Dropbox Backup" feature unintentionally. That's the issue! To turn the feature off, take a look on "Turn off computer backup" section in referred topic (follow the link). On step 6 choose "Keep content in folders on this PC/Mac", not "Leave content in Dropbox".

Hope this helps.

Thanks everyone for your help. I ended up switching off Dropbox and nearly lost loads of files. I logged back in and found them again then upgraded on a free trial. I am now backing up my laptop and then I will disconnect Dropbox. This issue has made me really angry and cost me hours of my time which I could have done without. It is obvious that all they want is to get customers to upgrade and pay them money. They will not have any of mine.
